Binging has become one of the limited to-dos that one can do amidst lockdown. And Netflix is making sure people have enough to watch so they don’t feel the urge to go out. You know, that’s Netflix’s way of helping the world fight the pandemic.
In another good cause, Netflix has put some of its shows, movies and documentaries for free on YouTube so you can enjoy them. Surely the list doesn’t have names like Stranger Things or Money Heist but some really good ones that you would love to watch. Have a look:
